I never signed up for this, but there’s an organization that tracks Twitter users from town to town and, on a monthly basis, sends them their ranking. Ummm – so – yay! If you’re not following me on Twitter, please click here to do so and join nearly 13,000 other folks.

FUN FACT: I auditioned for the Stanford Savoyards with the Sound of Music song “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” – – my range is wide enough that I was actually able to sing both Rolf and Liesl’s parts. Thank you. Thank you very much. (more…)

Chart Analysis

The market yesterday closed down again and reached a (more serious) intraday low of 2085.25. Is the correction over? Maybe. It has for sure entered the ~2097-2040 DAILY range that we originally indicated as “buyable” for short-term swing traders. If you are a long-term holder and you did not buy some weeks ago in the ~1970 area, this is an area where you may have started to consider buying again, it’s better than buying at the previous peak at ~2110, although of course is not such a great buy as it was a few weeks ago, but these WEEKLY+MONTHLY LONG setups don’t come up every few days as their time period is longer and they need more time to manifest.

Be aware that the market may correct further, as this is a WEEKLY correction in the end, it started last week and so far is continuing into this week, so if you go LONG be prepared to distribute your allocation across several levels in the area indicated.
